“The Body He fell In love With”


64 shares

“This isn’t the body you fell in love with.” I said to him.

The body he fell in love with was toned, it had muscles, there were no stretch marks on my belly, none on my boobs, no gut from muscle separation.

The body he fell in love with fit into tight jeans, could walk into a shop and grab any size and walk out, knowing it fit.

This body now couldn’t shop at those stores, and mostly wears leggings. His body stayed the same, but mine changed in every way. It isn’t fair…

I stood in front of him, exhausted and broken, the tears welled in my eyes, “this isn’t the body you fell in love with.”

Then he said, “you’re right. It isn’t the body I fell in love with.

Instead it’s a body that grew our children, it fed our children, it comforted our children, it made life.

Your body is the one I fall in love with every day

I didn’t know what love was until I saw this body and found out all it could do, so thank you.”

Do not be ashamed of what you have, or what your mum body looks like, there’s plenty of time to give up cake in the future, for now, enjoy the moments you have, and enjoy the fact that you have made something that is worth every stretch mark and every dimple.

If you needed a reminder, this is it, this body you have now, its worth every bit of love and more.
